Help of Door County working with inmates

Help of Door County is making part of their focus this year to lessen recidivism among female inmates in county jails. Looking at recidivism as an issue of community connection rather than an individual one, Help of Door County hopes to break the cycle for many in their community by working in connection with Door County Sheriff Tammy Sternard’s Fresh Start Program. Steve Vickman, Executive Director of Help of Door County, says he often sees repeat offenders coming from the same families and hopes to address the broader issue of lack of support.

 

 

Vickman says Help of Door County and the Fresh Start Program have group sessions twice a week with inmates to assist them with developing healthy relationships.
